Dear colleagues,

Halfway through the course, we hope you have enjoyed the journey so far and that last week gave you opportunities to reflect and maybe catch up with your learning blog.

Topic 3 – Learning in communities – networked collaborative learning begins today! 

Is 1+1=2 or is there more to it? The coming two weeks will be all about learning in communities, networking and collaboration. Many of us probably have experiences from group work, that for some reason hasn’t worked all that well (for instance it may have turned out as cooperative rather than collaborative?). When it really works well, how does this change the way we learn? How does online collaboration differ from that of face to face collaboration? And networking, in this age of social media, how can this be used for learning and how can we build Personal Learning Networks (PLN) to support this?

In this topic we offer the following common course events:

  • a webinar with Francisca Frenks, Miriam Fischer and David Appel (ONL alumni and facilitators) on Tuesday 5 November 11:00-12:00 (CET)
  • a tweetchat with Miriam Fisher and Jörg Pareigis about Learning in communities – networked collaborative learning on Thursday, November 14, 11:00 – 12:00 (CET)

Happy learning!

The ONL course organizers
